Paula’s Guest/Topic this week:
ArtZany! Radio with Paula Granquist shares the story of the wonderful Caponi Art Park in Eagan, Minnesota. You must visit this enchanting place that celebrates nature and art. Today, I’ll visit with the park’s executive director and then we’ll chat with the Okee Dokee Brothers who will perform a family friendly morning concert there next week.
Guest: Paula’s first guest today is Cheryl Caponi, Executive Director of Caponi Art Park in Eagan, Minnesota. The mission of Caponi Art Park and Learning Center is to make art accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds by providing a cultural and educational center where people come together with art and nature to restore, nurture and maintain the basic unity of the human spirit.

Located on 60-acres of rolling wooded hills in Eagan, Minnesota, Caponi Art Park and Learning Center is a distinctive community space offering free cultural and educational experiences in an inviting, natural setting. Caponi Art Park provides opportunities for reflective experiences as well as active participation in a variety of programs. The Art Park welcomes over 15,000 visitors each year. Visitors enjoy a quiet and peaceful atmosphere as they walk the trails and take in the art. The Art Park’s most prominent features include miles of wooded walking trails, a one-of-a-kind Sculpture Garden and the Theater in the Woods outdoor amphitheater.
Guest: The Okee Dokee Brothers are talented musicians and songwriters that put their passion for the outdoors at the heart of their Americana Folk music. Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing record and perform family music with a goal to inspire children and their parents to get outside and experience nature. They believe this can motivate kids to gain a greater respect for the natural world, their communities and themselves. Learn more at okeedokee.org
